Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Road transport emissions continue to be a significant source of air pollution in many countries around the world.

Measurement techniques have been used to obtain laboratory-based and real world emissions data over years. Those have been widely used to understand vehicle emissions (exhaust and non-exhaust) for research, in-use emission monitoring, model development and validation, and regulatory applications.

Emission models have rapidly evolved in recent years to provide useful tools for emission inventory applications, and evaluation of transport policies and measures.

Considering the current and future increase of the share of newer vehicle technologies in road transport, both measurements and modeling tools will continue to be extremely useful for emission trends analysis, emission control technology assessment, emission inventories development, as well as for new emission regulations adoption.

The journal Atmosphere dedicates this Special Issue (SI) to showcase the most recent findings on road transport emissions studies. This SI is open for submissions of original research studies, review, and perspective articles. Laboratory investigation, real world measurements, and modeling studies are all highly welcome. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Real world measurements of in-use and newer technologies;
  • In-use emission monitoring methods;
  • Laboratory tests;
  • Development and application of modeling tools.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Atmosphere is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
